    It had slipped my mind, but there were kits for the H2's a few years back that came with a too thick jet top (copper) washer. By chance was that an older service kit you used?

    My early 52 has a cable. My original was shredded. I got a replacement from "old" Abington. It was not quite correct. I needed to file the opening in the jackshaft box a bit.

    I believe the originals were probably not that bad as far as air flow restriction. The reproductions being sold for at least the last decade on the other hand would barley be suitable for a 3.5 hp lawn mower IMHO.

    Bill - The cable operated clutch was used on the TD up to just before the 53 model came out. If you have the cable set up and it is in good condition, I would certainly stick with it. A lot of the early cars had the cable set up wore out and it was no longer available. I don't know if the cable set up is still available, if it is, I would probably stick with it. If you have to change over to t...

    I ran across a set of Stellings and Hellings chrome air cleaners in a box of old parts. They are about 4.5 inches in diameter. They are for a set of 1 1/4 SU carbs based on the bolt pattern and bore size. They appear as if they will fit my TD however, there seems to be opinions on this forum that they are useless and limit the air supply vs the stock air cleaner. Can anyone give me any clarificati...
